Patten University
Oakland, United States- California


University description (as per official university website)

History of Patten University

In 1944, Dr. Bebe Patten and her husband, C. Thomas Patten, conducted evangelistic services in the Bay Area. Thousands of people filled the Oakland Auditorium Arena (now the Henry J. Kaiser Convention Center) seeking purpose and meaning for their lives. Several hundred answered a call to active Christian service. Because of this response, Dr. Patten founded the Oakland Bible Institute, which was incorporated as a California nonprofit corporation.

The School was located for several years at its initial location, 1428 Alice Street. It moved moved to Telegraph Avenue in 1950, and then to the present campus on Coolidge Avenue in 1960. Later the school was renamed Patten University in response to its growth and expansion of academic programs and degree offerings.

While the University has continued to emphasize Bible and church-centered ministries, it has created options for students whose career interests lie in fields other than the professional ministry.

The University is supported by the Christian Evangelical Churches of America, Inc. (CECA), also founded in 1944 by Dr. Patten. This organization is a separate nonprofit corporation that establishes churches and ordains men and women to the ministry. Christian Cathedral, the CECA headquarters church located on the Patten University campus, provides some of the facilities used in the University program.

In 1997, Patten University became an affiliate university of the Church of God, Cleveland, Tennessee. Recognized as a "Church of God Institution", the University provides programs to further the ministry and the work of the Church of God in the western United States

In the new millenium, Patten University will continue to hold to its founding mission: to help men and women prepare for a life of leadership and service.

Apply for Financial Aid

Education that's high in quality, not in cost.

Patten University has a long-standing tradition of offering quality education at a cost that most students find to be affordable. Our administration is committed to keeping tuition and fees for all programs at modest levels, so that students can focus their attention on learning and ministry, not on concerns about school loans. Patten University is proud that our yearly tuition is considerably less than the average annual tuition of $18,500 at other private universities in California. In addition to helping students afford their education through modest tuition costs, we help students receive all the financial aid for which they qualify. More than 75% of our student body are provided financial aid in the form of scholarships, loans, part-time employment or a combination of these sources.

How to Apply for Financial Aid

Those who have been accepted as regular students, including those in the fifth-year Multiple Subject Teaching Credential programs and the graduate programs, may apply for financial aid. Students must submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to a federal processor in order to determine their eligibility. Students must reapply for financial aid every year.

All students expecting to receive aid for the following academic year (late August through mid-May) should complete their applications prior to a recommended June 30 deadline in order to receive priority packaging. An award letter explaining what financial aid a student is eligible for will be forwarded to each student prior to the start of the semester
